    Chico - Northern California Homeless Hatred

    Chico California has a homeless shelter crisis, and the local chapter of the ACLU agrees.

    Downtown merchants allegedly threatening to "hose " homeless of the streets and sidewalks returning to the days of Birmingham and Martin Luther King with what seems like a stamp of approval from the City Council granting what can only be described as spiritual oppression, and a clear message of homeless having no right to exist.

    And in of all places Chico California ?

    When I grew up in Santa Barbara, homeless people generally seemed to me to be people who generally needed and deserved some help. I wasn't averse to occasionally giving them some money, or better yet, treating them to a meal at the nearest convenient fast-food joint, or finding whatever small ways I could to make their existence a bit easier. My wife and I occasionally made trips to a particular destination in Los Angeles, and there was one particular homeless person we were used to seeing panhandling at a certain point along the way. We made it a habit of having a $10 or a $20 bill to give him as we passed by.

    My view of homeless people has changed rather radically since we moved to Sacramento, about nine years ago. The homeless people up here are very different. They are crazy and scary and if you make any attempt to help them, no matter how generous, they'll just curse you for not helping them more, if they don't just outright physically try to attack you. They seem, in any ways, to not even really be quite human—more like dangerous wild animals than like human beings.

    If the homeless in Chico are anything like how they are here in Sacramento, then I cannot at all condemn the people of that city for the attitude that appears to be being described here toward the homeless.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I noticed this a few weeks back (they had an SUV in front of the main shopping area I go to). It seems like a pretty good idea.

    There are homeless all over my area, including some who are a bit off their rocker, some who are disabled and/or sick, and others who seem healthy, just homeless. They tend to all know each other too.
